Project ID803
DescriptionThe talk will start with a 'Damned Lie' and finish with some 'Damned Tricky Statistics'. In between the talk will cover some simple statistical concepts: Averages (mean or median), Percentages (relative or absolute) and Probability, Chance & Risk and will aim to explain them clearly with interesting statistics taken from everyday life as examples. However, statistics are frequently misused and examples will be given of their misuse in medicine, politics and the law.
